Trishuli River Rafting

Rafting in Nepal

Trishuli River is the first choice of a rafting fan and is also suitable for family adventures. It’s 3+ and 4-graded river and can be run throughout the year.  The rafting put in and take out locations are in convenient distance from Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan National Park.  Rafting trip in Trishuli  can be made for a varied duration, depending upon the availability of time and interest. Scenic valleys and impressive gorges, exhilarating rapids and easier sections as well as the right amount of time all make it the perfect trip for first-time as well as experienced rafters. Rafting trip down Trishuli River provides an excellent opportunity to observe the diversity of demography, landscapes, and cultural heritage and the flora and fauna. We can experience the thrills of white-water on the course of three days trip. The river trip is best done in two days and traveler with time constraint can also do a day trip.

During the monsoon, Trishuli River promises a more challenging ride, with powerful rapids and whirlpools. When the river is running high and wild, there are hardly any rafters around, and rafting on the Trishuli River is without a doubt the most exciting thing you can do in Nepal during monsoon and quite possibly one of the best two days big water rafting trips offered anywhere.

Rafting in Nepal

Nepal is one of the best and most popular countries for one-day or multiple-day white water rafting and kayaking. There are 16 rivers in Nepal that are open for white water rafting and kayaking. Several of the rivers offer one-day or two-day trips, others offer three, six and even eight days. For those interested in real prolonged adventure, there is ten-day plan available too.

There are a vast number of rafting companies in Nepal and choosing the correct one is essential. It is very important to have river guides that are qualified with training and experience of international standard with ability of good English speaking skills, providing you with top-level safety and high-end equipment. Each river guide is enriched with wide knowledge of flora and fauna which is a great advantage to enhance your adventure experience.

  • Guide must have: First-Aid + CPR certificates, White Water Rescue Technician (WRT) certificates of International Rafting Federation (IRF) and international work experience.
